Action on fuel poverty

SELCE is now offering a range of services to help reduce fuel poverty in London. Are you (or the people you work with) suffering from the cold this winter? Are you (or your clients) reluctant to turn the heating on because of the cost? Are you (or your clients) spending the winter dressed in your hat coat and gloves even when indoors? If so, don’t suffer in silence. We can help you (or your clients) to reduce the costs of keeping your home warm in winter.

SELCE provides three types of advice and training:

For you we provide energy cafes where you can join us for tea and cake and energy advice!
For your community group we can provide a workshop for your clients or service users or a one to one advice desk for your event.
For your front-line workers we can provide in-depth training or a short awareness-raising workshop.[/vc_column_text]

South East London Community Energy (SELCE) is a not-for-profit social enterprise. It was formed by residents of Greenwich and Lewisham who want to play an active role in shaping the energy future of South East London. Taking action on climate change and fuel poverty lies at the heart of our business model. Watch our film to find out how this works here. Generating renewable energy and providing advice and support for those struggling to pay their fuel bills and keep their homes warm in winter provide the twin focus for our work. SELCE aims to speed-up the renewable revolution by capitalising on the power of community.
